I was born and raised in eastern Montana, in a rural farming and ranching community. Seeing the healthcare disparities present in small towns and my love for science and working with people inspired me to pursue full spectrum family medicine. I was fortunate enough to gain experience working in rural medical communities through the UWSOM MT WWAMI TRUST program, a longitudinal program where I trained in Miles City, MT. While in Miles City, my love for women’s health and maternity care grew. Residency through the Magic Valley Rural Program in Twin Falls, Idaho was a fantastic fit, as it provided both high acuity patient experience, continuity clinic in a critical access hospital, and great access to the outdoors. During my time in residency, I developed additional special interests in inpatient medicine, addiction medicine (MAT), HIV care, LGTBQ care, and mental health. Additionally, teaching the next generation of doctors and healthcare providers is important to me, and I plan to teach medical students, residents, and other healthcare professionals. After residency in Twin Falls, I completed a High Risk OB/Rural Fellowship year at Tacoma General. My obstetrical skills grew exponentially, and I feel well prepared to provide high quality maternity care to the Magic Valley. I’m passionate about providing a personal experience for moms-to-be and their families, and intend to help my patients navigate their pregnancy with confidence and safety. After completing the OB fellowship, I worked for 2.5 years on the Flathead Reservation in Ronan/Polson, MT in a full spectrum family medicine role. In this role I provided care in multiple settings: outpatient family medicine clinic, inpatient hospital medicine, emergency department, obstetrics department, and nursing home. I loved the variety and community, and look forward to continuing to provide full spectrum family medicine care through FHS. Outside of medicine, hobbies include traveling, spending time with my family in Montana, camping, rock-climbing, boating, cooking, baking, spending time with my cat “Nahvi”, and attending music festivals with my boyfriend Pierre.
